KV63/The Amarna Royal Tombs Project

Thanks very much to Dr Nicholas Reeves for copying me in on an email that made his position on the subject of recent rumours very clear. In a statement on his website, at the above page:

Dear friends and colleagues
Because of various rumours now circulating I think it's best I respond to events formally on the Valley of the Kings Foundation/Amarna Royal Tombs Project website:
The site will continue to be updated over the course of the next few weeks and

With all good wishes
Nicholas Reeves

Congratulations to Dr Reeves firstly for the fact that his name was cleared officially in 2005 in relation to false allegations of artefact smuggling, and secondly for his new HQ at lovely Chiddingstone Castle. Chiddingstone claims to have the largest private Egyptology collection in the UK.

The ARTP website has comprehensive details of previous seasons's work, details of the team, articles, and promises of more pages to come.
